Children’s programming at Fourth Avenue Bible Church is offered from September through May.
At Fourth Avenue Bible Church our Children’s Ministry is called “ADVENTURE KIDS”
Our goal for the Adventure Kid’s program is to provide a caring place, a place where the children learn to understand what it means to know who God is, to walk with Him, to become more like Jesus and to let their ‘Light” shine by putting their love into action.
The Adventure Kid’s program is geared for children between the ages of 2 years old to 12 years old and it runs from mid September to the end of May.
ADVENTURE KID’S HOUR
The program is setup in the Large group/small group format, which is an hour long and runs from 9:30am – 10:30am. During our large group sessions we start off with a time of singing, then we have the bible story time which is either presented by Story tellers, our puppet team or buy video. We then move to “Dr. Wack A Doddle’s” experiment lab where with the help of experiments and object lessons the bible point is re-enforced. From the lab we return back to our large group area and we meet “Professor Proton” who is our memory verse professor. Every Sunday Professor Proton helps the children discover new ways to memorize God’s word. From there the children are divided up into age appropriate small groups for a time of digging deeper into God’s word.
Each month we are trying to do a special service project to help out either within the church or in the community. This is an opportunity for the children to put their lov into action, with the hope that this will help them carry this on in their everyday lives
SUPER KID WALL
Every two weeks a different child’s picture is posted on the “Super Kid Wall” and there are sticky notes available for EVERYONE in the church to write a note to the children and encourage them and to let them know they are valued and loved!
We have members from the congregation who graciously sign up to be a child’s prayer partner and then commit to pray, write encouraging and remember the special occasions in the child’s life for the entire year. This is a real encouragement for the children.
Is the designated childcare time for ages 1-4 years old during the service. The children are dismissed to go to Kidz Korner during the last song of the Worship Service before the Life Lesson. The childcare is provided by volunteer parents.
We have an infant nursery for parents, equipped with cribs, rocking chairs, a diaper changing table, extra diapers and wipes. The worship service can be heard through a speaker system.
We have a toddler nursery separate from the infant nursery. There is also a washroom in this space which is equiped with a change table. The worship service can be heard through a speaker system.
